STRENGTHS: Ostenno is very focused on his companion's relationship with themselves. He helps you learn how the view you have of yourself impacts you and your perception of those around you. He can boost your connection to nature and animals, often helping you ground yourself to a neutral energy where you can consider things objectively rather than with a trained bias. He aids his keeper in finding personal truths and being honest with themselves, rather than trying to find everything that influences them externally.
PERSONALITY: He is a friendly companion, often coming across a bit naive when he's getting to know you. He isn't entirely familiar with human customs, leading him to use the wrong words or not understand certain actions and responses. He is quick to laugh it off, though when it comes to his work, he is a more serious companion. He doesn't joke around while he's helping his keeper in any capacity. He is deceptively mature, and even when he messes things up, he doesn't take childish stances on it and is quick to admit his own faults.
APPEARANCE: He has a lean torso, though his compact musculature is evident under his sand-colored skin. He has freckles over his cheeks and shoulders, though no other blemishes in his complexion. His hair is a light brown color, his eyes a rich copper hue. He keeps his hair relatively short, though it tends to be untamed. His horse half is similar in build and color to a lean palomino with light brown tail.

Ostenno, Male Centaur
Centaurs are well-known creatures of the forest, coming in many forms with multiple animals serving as their lower half. The traditional centaur, spoken of in Greek and Roman Myth, has the lower half of a horse and the torso of a human. Centaurs are widely populated, some choosing to immerse themselves in the newer technology and culture our world has to offer, while others remain traditional and without technology. Many of them still remain in groups that are mixed in levels of technological interest.
The group of Centaurs that I work with are often warriors, protective and noble companions that seek to aid their keepers by passing on their knowledge or simply offering them safety and protection. They tend to be social, somewhat boastful companions with many good yarns to tell around a fire or at a party. They tend to enjoy good company and sometimes network with other groups. You'll often find a Centaur treating another Centaur, even if from another group, as a brother in arms.
Bringing a Centaur into your keep often aids in reconnecting to nature as a whole, in addition to the protection they can give you. They often have knowledge of different practices that they've been exposed to over time, along with knowledge of how to work with fae and other spirits of the forest. They tend to boost your ability to work with animals, and also help you with your intuition.
